Ahri Nendoroid 411 comparison : Real vs Fake - Updated

PixelatedPixelatedhace 2 añosReview
Hello everyone I come here today in the name of Nendoroid Science and have gone ahead and gotten the counterfeit Ahri Nendoroid that has been popping up to compare with the original I got a while back

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

disclaimer!

Before I start I would like to say I do not condone people buying counterfeit products and if and when readily available you should always support the company who originally created the product, now onto the science-y bit?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Real on the right fake on the left - all pictures follow this.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

First of lets start with a the packaging, clear differences to be seen the counterfeit packaging images used are very pixalted (Heh my name?)

Now onto the contents of the figure everything looks in order, although the stand has a very yellow tint to it.

Close up of the counterfeit Ahri she even comes wrapped in the plastic real nendoroids come with? Bootleggers are upping their game...

Holy moly, it comes with instructions, although they are slightly faded looks like they didn't scan them very well :x

Onto the figure its self side by side with the real one to the left, first impression its very well made bootleg.

Onto the autopsy, again following the same format real on the right fake on the left, the printing on the fake is very very well done only need a few very minor touch ups.

Now to the legs again the fake is very well done
http://i1081.photobucket.com/albums/j350/fire_brand15/1c424e27-741f-40d3-bb0a-2acbe7b31460.jpg
Arma side by side as you see slight paint run, but the gold gilding on the arm is very very well done
http://i1081.photobucket.com/albums/j350/fire_brand15/dd39dd1f-65be-4085-97a0-1a2022acb7c2.jpg
Ahri's faces side by side silk screen printing on the fake is well done
http://i1081.photobucket.com/albums/j350/fire_brand15/55910b8f-3a73-481c-8c96-41a54fea0d78.jpg
The fake uses the older type of nendoroid head so that a clear indication of a fake, the skin colour is well replicated and not yellowed or too pink as some other counterfeits do
http://i1081.photobucket.com/albums/j350/fire_brand15/b887a98b-9968-46af-a24e-23eaacfbc1dc.jpg

Stand Although I said the stand was yellowed I opened the box today to find it clear, not sure what witchcraft happened but it is most certainly clear, comparison with the real stand.

Onto the Spirit Orb/Q spell
The top of the fake tail for the orb is missing a small section otherwise good but visible mold lines can be seen running around the orb

Onto Ahri's E/Charm effect part
http://i1081.photobucket.com/albums/j350/fire_brand15/Nendoroids%20and%20Loot/2d012a76-117b-4824-b209-88bf6f35c424.jpg
The fake has lines along the middle from a bad cast, interesting note the fake is much clearer than the real charm.

real charm for comparison

Fox tails side by side to note the fake is much lighter whilst the real one has a dark grey tint to the tail.

Hope this helps people looking to get Ahri again I do not say go buy this and this is just for documentation purposes, overall the build quality is what you expect of a fake, the Ahri overall does not hold together too well but nothing a little glue can;t fix, the paint is very well done to say its a fake but still not a nice as the original, can't recommend buying it but again this was mainly for nendoroid science.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Notes:
-The Fake after doing a small shake test mostly holds together with only a few parts dropping off, i.e the braided hair falling off I would recommend replacing the joints or stiffening them with glue.

-The stand is very yellowed almost as if sat in the sun/smoke damage. - Edit after having the stand open and out it has changed to a clear colour as seen in the pictures not sure how this happened.

-Minor paint touch ups would be required.

-Charm spell effect part (Large heart) on the fake is almost the same apart from a few marks to the front which look to be defect to the cast (Lines) otherwise unnoticeable in normal conditions

-Would require the arm sockets and tail socket stiffening with glue to hold poses.


Pixelated.

kawaiistarz (hace 2 años) #2841449Thanks for the detailed photos! This was a great post!
I ended up getting the bootleg one off ebay for $16 a few weeks ago. Your photos look pretty much exactly like the one I got. The arms and hair do fall off quite a bit if I'm handling it but other than that it's exceptional for a bootleg. I tried in vain to find an authentic one for a reasonable price but most of them are over $100 and all I'm going to do with it is put it on my desk or take a few instagram photos. If they end up rereleasing the authentic one I'll definitely be getting it if I can. I hope they make more of the LOL characters!

Your very welcome, I do hope they release Ahri as well as make a few more league champions too :)

Benchii (hace 2 años) #2643256Are you going to take any more pictures for more comparison? I feel like the bootleg isn't that noticeable. Then again I'm all for authenticity so I might just give in and try to win a bid for her on Ebay. (⊙﹏⊙✿)

machete (hace 2 años) #2617950Hi, i have a question:
The face is glossy (like most bootlegs) or matte?

Matte there is almost no difference between the real and the fake, super minor colour difference on the eyelashes but the entire thing is matte not a single glossy area that shouldn't be glossy :)
